Campaign Notebook: Larson, Decker Have 'Stark Differences'

News and updates from the campaign trail in Connecticut.

First District

In a profile today in the Hartford Courant the newspaper says John Larson (D) and his opponent, John Henry Decker (R), have "stark differences."

Senate

The latest Quinnipiac Poll showed Chris Murphy with a 49-43 lead over Linda McMahon. Both sides offered their side of the story after the results were released on Wednesday.

Corry Bliss, campaign manager for McMahon, said that Ramussen and Mason-Dixon polling firms found the race to be a dead heat.

“If it weren’t so close, Congressman Murphy might not be lying to the people of Connecticut about his record of voting for higher taxes for the middle class, voting against funding to build submarines in Groton,” Bliss said.

Murphy’s campaign fired off a similar missive to the press.

“After losing four debates and seeing the momentum shift strongly toward Chris, Linda McMahon is now relying completely on stale, desperate, and dishonest political attacks to distract voters from her extreme right-wing positions,” said spokesman Ben Marter.

Third District

Rosa DeLauro (D) received the endorsement of the Hartford Courant. According to the editorial, “Republican control of the House the past two years has put a crimp in her style. Still, she's good at playing defense.”

Wayne Winsley (R):
 A blog post on the candidate’s website discusses the campaign so far. “My message of moving people from food stamps to full time employment and helping businesses small and large to grow and create jobs for more of our neighbors is resonating and We the People are responding,” Winsley wrote.

Fourth District
